we are trying to have access to our slow query log file at “/var/log/mysql/localhost-slow.log” but it looks like the file is empty. The “my.cnf” file says “!includedir /etc/my.cnf.d”, and inside that directory we have the following files:
mysql-clients.cnf; server.cnf; tokudb.cnf;
Looking at the “server.cnf” file it looks like it’s set properly to write slow queries logs:
# # These groups are read by MariaDB server. # Use it for options that only the server (but not clients) should see # # See the examples of server my.cnf files in /usr/share/mysql/ # # this is read by the standalone daemon and embedded servers [server] # this is only for the mysqld standalone daemon [mysqld] slow-query-log = 1 slow-query-log-file = /var/log/mysql/localhost-slow.log long_query_time = 1 log-queries-not-using-indexes # this is only for embedded server [embedded] # This group is only read by MariaDB-5.5 servers. # If you use the same .cnf file for MariaDB of different versions, # use this group for options that older servers don't understand [mysqld-5.5] # These two groups are only read by MariaDB servers, not by MySQL. # If you use the same .cnf file for MySQL and MariaDB, # you can put MariaDB-only options here [mariadb] [mariadb-5.5]
Any idea on what could be the issue? We’ve tried to add the following:
[mysqld] slow-query-log = 1 slow-query-log-file = /var/log/mysql/localhost-slow.log long_query_time = 1 log-queries-not-using-indexes
directly into my.cnf and then restarting through
service mysql restart but it didn’t work?
Thanks in advance for any help.
